« on: June 20, 2018, 03:17:08 pm »
hi, i use "sudo apt-get install codeblocks " to install CB on ubuntu 18.04, after installing, i find that the version of CB on ubuntu is very old (CB 16.01), is there any way to install the latest version of CB on ubuntu?
thanks :)

You can build a package manually if our download section doesn't provide packages for 18.04.
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

And please report it to the maintainer of your linux distribution that there is a new release of codeblocks

You can build codeblocks pretty easy: https://github.com/bluehazzard/codeblocks_sf/wiki/build_linux_mint_18
